RESIDENTS near Grosnez and Plémont have been asked to check their properties again as the search for Adam McGrath, 58, enters its second week and “a more targeted phase of investigation”.

Mr McGrath went missing on the morning of Monday 13 May, when he left his home at Rue du Maupertuis in St Clement.

He drove east towards Gorey, according to the States police, before crossing the north of the Island towards Grosnez. His car, a white Ford Fiesta Zetec, was later found there.

He is described as white with white hair, about 5’9 and of broad build. He is thought to have been wearing a black or navy long-sleeved top, dark grey or black wide-legged tracksuit bottoms and black Skechers.

The search has now been going on for a week and has involved drones, planes, boats and search and rescue dogs.

The States police said the investigation was moving into “a more targeted phase” with officers piecing together Mr McGrath’s movements before he arrived at Grosnez.

Jersey Search and Rescue, the fire service, Channel Island Air Search, Air Rescue Channel Islands, Jersey Coastguard and the honorary police have all been involved in the search alongside police.

The States police has reiterated calls to those living in the north of the Island to check their gardens, outbuildings and footage from video doorbells

Anyone with dashcam footage from roads in the area taken between 5.30am and 7.15am on that morning has been asked to check it.

They have also asked to speak to anyone who had contact with Mr McGrath in the week before his disappearance.

Islanders are being asked to be “watchful” when out and about and to report anything of note to the police on 612612.

Mr McGrath’s family are being supported by specialist officers.
